BRIANS Invisible Women
  • BRIANS Invisible Women


    This Photo Book is the result of the participatory photography project TRANSFERING THE OBJECTIVE organized by the Setba Foundation in the women's unit of the Brians 1 Penitentiary Center in Sant Esteve Sesrovires (Barcelona), in collaboration with the artist and activist Marta Fàbregas . For two years, more than sixty women in prison have participated in photography workshops, discovering a new form of expression and doing empowerment work, which has improved their self-esteem and image.


    Women are the most forgotten in the prison system, representing only 7% of the inmate population, with fewer facilities and resources than men. This project is a statement of principles and this book is the first in the collection. It also includes two reports, one by Camila Oliveira currently in third grade and mentored by Marta Fàbregas, and another by Sofia Kyprisli, who continues in Brians and has had photojournalist Sandra Balsells as her mentor. The Foundation wants to contribute to social transformation through culture, a powerful tool that always "saves" us.
